Got Some New Stuff (Dexter)
Trivia for you guys…there was one outtake from Splinter. It was called ‘Pass Me By‘. We really liked it, and all, it was sort of heavy and we just decided to hold off on releasing it. So take that one straight to the BBS!
(Plays new song)
Dexter: Kind of a slow rock song that kind of like... Well, I like it a lot. I've called it "Pass Me By". I don't know what it's going to be about. You got 5 minutes? (laughs)
Web Dude: Yeah, I want to check this one out. It sounds like "Denial, Revisited" a little. It's really hard rock with beefy guitars.
Dexter: It's kind of spooky. I like this lead part a lot. It's one of those songs where I've played it for people and they've said maybe you could shorten it or something but I kinda like it the way it is and I figure it's not necessarily gonna be on the radio and not all songs need to follow a real strict pop single format. And to a certain degree you've got to let a song write itself.
Web Dude: Yeah, there's no formula that you just plug stuff into, right?
Dexter: Not really, and it just seems like there are spots in that song where it just called for certain things. It's a 5 minute song, but I think that it's good the way it is.
Web Dude: That's cool. I like it the way it is.
Dexter: Yeah, that seemed like one you'd like.
Web Dude: Cuz I'm a rocker?
Fascinating stuff. If Dex likes it, WE WANT IT!!!!! I shall start another PMB thread tommorrow!
Interesting little details, indeed.
D knows his stuff for us the fans.
